      This is such a weak period that these nominations might turn out to be quite surprising for the first time.
      I have received many gifts from God,
      but this is the first time I have ever received a gift from a goddess

        One of the weakest years in recent years and Taylor could sneak in and be nominated again for aoty at this rate

          I think "Old Town Road" might be submitted to Pop. It's not exactly a Rap song, and it's not exactly a Country song either - so I guess Pop would be the safest choice.

            I agree with [MENTION=28072]beredy[/MENTION]. In terms of new exciting music, this year had been notably lowkey - bar maybe Billie Eilish and 'A Star Is Born'. Therefore, I have the feeling that there will be a few surprising nominations like Norah Jones back in the day...

            and everything you stand for?
            Could I break through your invisible wall, could I hide my pride for once,
            just to tell you that I see more?

              I think they will be stupid to place it in pop because they only get one shot for a grammy in pop. Pop duo

                It's not pop enough for the pop category, not country enough for the country category and not rap enough for the rap category, so yeah, it will be a compromise either way - they'll pick the category that gives them the best chance of winning, I guess.

                  Tbh that would be rap.

                  There is not monster rap single this year so he would snag one title... even rap sung

                    Ken Ehrlich Stepping Down as Grammys Executive Producer After 2020 Telecast

                    Ehrlich will be celebrating his 40th anniversary with the show next year.

                    Longtime Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich will return to executive produce the upcoming 62nd Grammy ceremony in 2020, but the show will be his last, the Recording Academy announced Wednesday (July 17). Following next year’s telecast -- Ehrlich’s 40th with the Grammys -- the show will be taken over by Late Late Show With James Corden executive producer Ben Winston, who has signed on to executive produce the 63rd Grammys in 2021.

                    “Ken's imprint on the Grammy Awards and the music industry are well-known and represent the kind of work and vision that legends are made of," said Recording Academy president and CEO Neil Portnow in a statement. Portnow will step down from his position at the Academy in August, another sign of the rapid and dramatic changes at the Academy.

                    He continued, "Having worked closely with Ken for almost half of his tenure with the show, I have seen first-hand the vision, extraordinary musical knowledge, and passion he brings to every minute of the process, and the spectacular results and memorable Grammy Moments that have been delivered.”

                    The announcement comes one day after the 61st annual Grammy Awards received four nominations, including outstanding variety special (live). It was the second year in a row the show was nominated in that category.

                    For his part, Winston received five Emmy noms Tuesday for his work on The Late Late Show With James Corden and two Carpool Karaoke spinoff specials.

                    Winston's connection with Corden is what first led him into the Grammy orbit. Corden hosted the Grammys in 2017 and 2018. Winston was credited as consulting producer on the 2017 telecast and producer on the 2018 installment. (Ehrlich was credited as executive producer both years.) Winston also produced and wrote special material for the 70th annual Tony Awards in 2017, which Corden also hosted.

                    "To have been a part of the growth of the Grammy Awards into the preeminent music awards show of our time has been one of the highlights of my professional life, and I'm grateful to the Recording Academy and to our partners at CBS for their support and for trusting my vision over the past four decades," added Ehrlich. “I have also been the happy recipient of having an incredible group of people who have worked on the show over the years, and of course the most amazing cadre of musical artists who bring their own creativity and brilliance to the Grammy stage year after year.”

                    Ehrlich, a nine-time Emmy nominee who produced his first Grammys in 1980, has worked on numerous other live shows and events over the course of his 50-year career, including the Emmys, the MTV Movie Awards and the Latin Grammy Awards. Additionally, he has produced televised music specials for artists including Beyoncé, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, John Legend and Justin Timberlake and directed the Las Vegas residencies of Celine Dion and Mariah Carey. In 2007, he was honored with the Visionary Award by the Producers Guild of America.

                    Ehrlich has received six of his nine Emmy noms for his work on Grammy telecasts or the Grammy-branded spinoff, The Beatles: The Night That Changed America. The other three were for a 1995 PBS special, Eric Clapton: Nothing But the Blues, the syndicated TV series Fame (1984) and a 1983 children's program for NBC, Grandpa, Will You Run With Me?

                    Winston is a partner at the production company Fulwell 73 and has served as executive producer on The Late Late Show with James Corden since 2015. During his tenure, he's co-created and executive produced Carpool Karaoke: The Series and executive-produced Drop the Mic, both based on recurring Late Late Show segments.

                    ”It's an absolute honor to be executive producer of the Grammys for 2021," he said in a statement. "I feel excitement and nerves in equal measure on taking on this role, but mostly I feel immense gratitude to the Recording Academy for this wonderful opportunity. I also want to salute Ken, who has done an absolutely remarkable job over the last 40 years."

                    Winston has additionally produced music specials for artists such as Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Sam Smith and Harry Styles and executive-produced live events including the Tony Awards, the BRIT Awards and the Global Citizen Nelson Mandela 100 Concert in South Africa headlined by Beyoncé and Jay-Z. He is the recipient of six Emmy Awards and has been nominated 22 times.

                    Deborah Dugan Selected to Succeed Neil Portnow as Recording Academy President/CEO: Sources
                    With Ehrlich's planned departure, coming about six months after Portnow's imminent exit, two of the three principals who long oversaw the Grammy telecast will have left. That leaves just one member of that long-term troika standing—Jack Sussman, executive vice president, specials, music and live events, CBS Entertainment. Sussman has held that title since March 2006. He has been head of CBS specials since 1998, which extends back into the administration of Mike Greene, Portnow's predecessor as president/CEO of the Recording Academy.

                    The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards is slated to air Jan. 26, 2020, on CBS.

                            They are obviously keeping things down low because they failed once again when they tried making non-pop acts dominate when it turned out to be a huge pop year again. It's like they are always scrambling on trying to pull a big move to secure that the artists they choose to win are the ones who would be legendary to the general audience, but with the whole eight nominee rule in the General Field, they are even more lost than ever.

                                Has an artist ever been nominated twice for AOTY in the same year?

                                  So the only potential contender in August is Bon Iver, so the main contenders for AOTY will be:

                                  Ariana Grande - Thank U, Next
                                  Beyoncé - Homecoming: The Live Album
                                  Billie Eilish - When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
                                  Bon Iver - i,i
                                  Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga - A Star Is Born OST
                                  Khalid - Free Spirit
                                  Lizzo - Cuz I love You
                                  Solange - When I Get Home
                                  Tyler, the Creator - IGOR


                                  I personally would like to see James Blake, Maggie Rogers or Anderson. Paak nominated but they hasn't managed to maintain hype. Chance disappointed so will probably be excluded. Beyoncé's The Gift could have a chance but it flew under the radar and Homecoming was better received. We'll also probably get a country act as well, with Eric Church, Maren Morris or Thomas Rhett being good contenders.

                                  What do you guys think?

                                    Khalid? I mean his album wasn't received very warm by the critics and it doesn't seem like people care much about it either.

                                    With how weak this year is I think a rock/indie band could sneak in for a surprise nom - something liek Vampire Weekend or The National. And something country for sure.
                                    I have received many gifts from God,
                                    but this is the first time I have ever received a gift from a goddess
                                    .

                                      Cutie Taylor is a possible contender for August as well at least for a nomination. There haven't been many huge blockbuster albums released this period tbh. I could see Bruce Springsteen in there as well. I guess there will be at least one country album nominated as well. If Bey only submits Homecoming and leaves out The Gift then I think she will be nominated as well but otherwise I can see too many split votings.
                                      These should be locked in though I think as they have been highly successful:
                                      Ariana Grande - Thank U, Next
                                      Billie Eilish - When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
                                      Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga - A Star Is Born OST

                                        I only put Khalid there because his popular, same with Lizzo. Their albums aren't the strongest but they're doing well at the moment with their singles and the competition is weak.

                                        I forgot about Vampire Weekend, good shout. They could get a slot as well.

                                        I don't see Taylor getting a nomination. Reputation was ignored and her recent output is even worse.

                                        If The Gift did well I could have seen Beyoncé being nominated twice.

                                        It's just a really weak year, and there are 8 slots as well.

                                          Agreed, it was a very weak year. I can see Lizzo and Ariana Grande getting a slot, but being honest, only Gaga/Cooper and Billie Eilish really released something that could be considered Grammy-worthy. Everything else was just there...

                                            There are plenty quality albums just not hugely successful but that's not what they grammys should only be focusing on anyway

                                              ROTY/SOTY is even weaker. It's between OTR and Bad Guy.

                                                THE NEW GRAMMY CHEW: HOLD THE MAYO

                                                With mere weeks to go before the Grammy eligibility deadline, let’s take a look at a few more contenders for the top-tier categories. Before we do, though, we feel duty-bound to note that Billie Eilish’s momentum continues apace; she’s earned her first #1 at Pop radio, further cementing this wunderkind’s status as a mass-appeal giant. Now, who else will be nipping at her heels?


                                                Beyoncé: Columbia’s megadiva is still the queen, and she earned huge press and acclaim for her Homecoming set and documentary, based on her dazzling, HBCU-themed Coachella performance from the preceding year. It’s a document of the hardest-working artist in showbiz at the height of her powers; expect it to be remembered in the Album of the Year category.

                                                Tyler Childers: Like Brandi Carlile, Sturgill Simpson (who serves as producer here), Jason Isbell and other roots-minded outsiders, Childers is a serious songwriter finding new depth in classic country tropes. Just listen to his Hickman Holler/RCA set Country Squire—it’s a revelation.

                                                J. Cole: “Middle Child” has been a huge hit for the quietest big artist in the biz, who is also among the most respected and thoughtful voices in hip-hop. Could the Dreamville/Roc Nation/Interscope star have this year’s equivalent of “This Is America” in the ROTY/SOTY categories?

                                                Halsey: This Capitol breakout has run a strong and steady race on her way to superstardom, and “Without Me” was the song that brought her to critical mass, topping the Pop radio chart and earning astronomical streams. Her momentum continues, and you’re unlikely to see a ROTY/SOTY nominees list “Without” her.

                                                Juice WRLD: The Academy missed the boat after Grade A/Interscope’s rap innovator first broke out with the chart-rocking, DSP-ruling “Lucid Dreams,” and many in the biz were shocked when he didn’t make the Best New Artist cut. Could this be the makeup year?

                                                Lil Tecca: “Ransom,” which recently flew to #1 on Spotify’s U.S. chart, is completely en fuego. But lest you think this is just another streaming hip-hop record, Team Republic has already gotten him started at radio, where he’s receiving a warm, multiformat welcome. This one’s likely to get much bigger, with another potential hit on deck. Look for the Academy to Tecca look at him for BNA. (That joke would’ve killed in the Poconos.)

                                                Maren Morris: It’s fitting that Columbia Nashville’s versatile young star broke Country radio’s glass ceiling with a song called “GIRL,” becoming the first female act in 18 months to hit #1 at the format. Morris’ grit, intelligence and soulful musicality—and her mainstream bona fides, as established by 2018 pop monster and ROTY/SOTY nominee “The Middle”—put her in the conversation for Album (also called GIRL, for those of you keeping score), Record and Song.

                                                Taylor Swift: With new album Lover about to drop, we’re braced for more controversy—will Grammy once again stiff the megastar of pop megastars? A Tay drop is always an event. The ball’s in your court, secret committees.

                                                      i think with the recent increase in the grammy voters committee that we'll see a change in this coming year for some of our faves. id will for bey to win a big category but it may not happen.

                                                      i hope ari gets a big win, as well as gaga for ASIB and solange for when i get home.
                                                      we fell dangerously in love, confronted resentment
                                                      questioned our sweet dreams. began the countdown
                                                      held onto blue, survived the love drought
                                                      and realised we're part of something bigger

                                                        THE GRAMMY CHEW: ALBUM CONTENDERS

                                                        This edition of the Chew takes a look at a batch of Grammy contenders for Album of the Year—some obvious, some long shots. We have a large group vying for those eight spots, so let’s get right to it.

                                                        Billie Eilish: The teen marvel has to be the lock of the century, and is likelier than anyone to enjoy noms in all or most of the major categories. Her cultural impact is off the charts and she is a textbook new-artist story.

                                                        Ariana Grande: She wasn’t recognized last year, when she had huge success—and this year she’s even bigger, having fully cracked the streaming code with her most impactful material yet. Beware: The same committees are voting this year. All we can say is, enough already.

                                                        Khalid: He just gets bigger and bigger. Simply stated, there are no Grammys this year without Khalid in multiple categories. Get your calculators ready.

                                                        Taylor Swift: Let the controversy begin. Will the Academy recognize the world’s biggest star?

                                                        Beyoncé: Her Homecoming was an event and a distillation of everything that makes her a goddess. Will the Academy give this set its due even though it’s a live album? Ask Peter Frampton.

                                                        A Star Is Born: This gigantic cultural event, with Gaga showing still more stunning range and Bradley showing real music chops, should be a lock. Last year’s Grammy deadline fell between the drop of “Shallow” and the album.

                                                        P!nk: It’s amazing that, after all these years, P!nk hasn’t yet been given an AOTY nom. We thought she deserved it last time, and we think she deserves it this time.

                                                        Lizzo: The singer/songwriter/rapper is Eilish’s only rival for cultural impact, and her album has earned unqualified raves. It would be surprising if she didn’t make the cut.

                                                        Maggie Rogers: She’s right in the Grammy sweet spot. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see this singer/songwriter, long a favorite of industry tastemakers, receive a top-tier nod.

                                                        Ed Sheeran: The mega-star had another dominant year, with lots of high-profile collabs. But Grammy politics have kept him from the recognition a star of his caliber would typically expect. Will Academy insiders change course?

                                                        Tyler, The Creator: The well-respected, forward-looking rapper’s latest is his most mass-appeal release yet, underscoring that he really is a Creator—and certainly deserving of a Best Album nod.

                                                        Dreamville: J. Cole’s compilation presents an opportunity for the Academy to recognize his enormous contribution to music and culture—he’s more than deserving.

                                                        Maren Morris: The Nashville star is woven into the Grammy fabric, and earned a BNA nod the first time out. Her GIRL set is all about female empowerment and she’s the first woman to get a #1 at Country radio in 18 months. A long shot, perhaps, but keep an eye on the CMA noms for possible foreshadowing.

                                                        Lewis Capaldi: The Scottish troubadour has gotten stronger and stronger during the eligibility period and seems destined to get recognized in the Best New Artist/SOTY/ROTY categories. Could the love extend to Album?

                                                        BTS: Another long shot, but these lads are leaders of the K-Pop movement. It stands to reason that the telecast’s team will want this troupe—whose rabid fans are a force of nature—on the Grammy stage.

                                                        Gary Clark, Jr.: A Grammy favorite and a peerless musician with huge appeal to traditionalists, Clark has made an album of substance that ticks a lot of Grammy boxes. Is it his time to go to the next level?

                                                        Eric Church: A gifted writer and strong performer who’s widely admired well beyond Nashville, Church continues to push the creative envelope.

                                                        Sheryl Crow: Beloved by Grammy since the beginning of her career, when Best New Artist was one of the first of many trophies, Crow returns with her strongest Grammy play in years, assisted by a stunning guest list of stars. Let’s see if momentum builds.
                                                        Including Ed Sheeran BTS and Lewis Capaldi and ignoring James Blake and Solange is...odd, but I agree that the remaining artists have the best chance.

                                                          They also ignored Madonna or Ciara.

                                                          They listed many albums I hate.
                                                          I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

                                                            Those two barely have shot at genre categories, let alone AOTY.

                                                              P!nk?

                                                              That last album of hers was extremely bland and boring.
                                                              It would be ridiculous if she gets nominated.
                                                              "I see it, I like it, I want it... I GOT IT."
